    Mountain stay outside the National Park

    Outside the park so cheaper accommodation option (RM30pp dorm room), in a beautiful mountain setting. But if you have luggage and decide to walk, instead of taking a taxi from the National Park, just be aware it's about 2km walk and there's a few uphil bits! Great location though - where the turnoff is to the Lodge from the main road, there are stalls selling vegetables and fruit. You can use the kitchen at the lodge to make your own food. The lodge has a very homely feel with lounge chairs, tv, verandah to take in the views and very helpful staff. Also, by the food stalls on the main road, you can wait to grab a bus to Kota Kinabalu - extra handy!

    Great breakfast every morning and Leo and the team are very friendly and helpful when advising on Kinabalu climb and national park trails. Side road there is a little tricky with bags!

    You know the saying "It's about the journey, not the destination"? Well, hiking up to the summit of Mt Kinabalu is about both - the entire journey and the final destination. The destination is Low's Peak at 4095.2m, and the journey is just over 8.5km of straight up, up and more up, followed by all down, down, down after you have summited.

John was elected as the Leader, so he had to be welcomed by the local Tribe leader to the village, before we could all go to the dinner.We were then treated to a wonderful music and dance concert before we had a traditional buffet dinner, with salted fish, chicken and other delights! We were transported back to our Hotel for ...

I was very lucky to meet a great team of volunteers in the place I was staying at, that didn't hesitate and adopted me for one day which we spent on one of the nearby islands. The day turned out to be a lot of fun around bunch of amazing people. It surely helped me take my mind of the mountain, but on the other hand I'm pretty sure that's what I was talking about through most of the day. Sorry guys...

    ... save room for a big popcorn at the cinema! So with my big popcorn and drink we spent the next few hours watching Spider-Man which was awesome! It hadn't been rated well when we looked it up beforehand but it was honestly one of the best films I've seen in a long time, definitely worth a watch. After feeling pretty happy after the film we walked back to the hotel and watched the latest episode of game of thrones before calling it a ...

Embarquem rąpidament en una barca neta que hi caben unes 15 persones; ens donen armilles salvavides i anem riu amunt on veiem de seguida un grup d’uns 10 o 15 Nassuts penjats als arbres que voregen el riu, menjant fulles i brots, saltant de branca en branca. No sembla pas que els destorbem massa.
